Your electric car will require regular servicing, just like a petrol or diesel car. We carry out all the usual roadworthiness checks, but the rest of your service is quite different.

When you bring your electric vehicle in for a service, we check for all the usual service items legal requirements, such as wear on the braking system, your headlights and tyre condition.

But your electric car service will also include the following checks:

  • Charging cable: we check that cable is present and visually check its condition
  • High-voltage battery: we check the charge level and recharge if necessary
  • High-voltage components and high-voltage cables: we inspect these for damage and correct routing and securing of lines

Oil changes a thing of the past

Unlike petrol and diesel vehicles, electric vehicles don’t need an oil change - because there’s no oil to change! This can also save you money.
